WILE, Mildred H. (née) Freeman


Born October 19, 1914, died January 13, 2018. Mildred was born and raised in Buckfield, Queens County. When she married, she moved to Waterloo, Lunenburg Co. She was the last remaining member of a large family that included Robie and Cora Freeman; her brothers, Everett, Banford, George, Charles, Hardy, Wilfred, and Lincoln; half brothers Arthur, Ralph, Clarence and Samuel; half sisters Ada Eastwood and Margaret Morgan. She was a good wife to Bert Starr Wile, deceased, and she was a great mother to Lorna (Charles) Crouse and Merrill (Kathy) Hirtle. Over the many years of her life she worked for and supported a lot of causes; Women’s Institutes of NS, The Lunenburg West PC Women; she was a lifetime member of both the Lapland, and District Fire Department Auxillary also come under her support. But near and dear to her heart was the Waterloo Community Hall. The many suppers, teas, and most importantly card parties. It did not matter if the card party was at the hall, her home, or someone else’s home, sandwiches and squares were whipped up to be enjoyed after playing was done. She was an avid quilter for most of her life and all her family has a lovely sample of her work. In later years Betty Wile, Shirley Crouse, and Phyllis Weagle would get together most week days to quilt both for individuals and causes and she was seen many times about town in malls and stores selling tickets on some of those quilts to raise money for different causes. A much loved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, her legacy will live on through daughter Lorna (Charles) Crouse, grandson Donnie Crouse, his wife Michelle and their son Corbin; grandson Steven Crouse and his wife Margie, granddaughter Karla Crouse; Merrill (Kathy) Wile, grandson Sean Wile, his wife Michelle and girls, Ashlyn, Lucilyn and Adalyn; grandson Neville Wile and Dayna Bowman, and their son Greysen.
